It has a stock box on the back. Not the most ideal one...

Just curious how do you think horses were transported before trailers became mass produced and affordable for people to own?

A) I fail to see the problem. Horse is calm and looking around. Driver is accelerating and driving moderately. There is a frame high enough to keep him in there.

B) Some of you people make me laugh, "I would have stopped the guy and gave him a piece of my mind". Do you think you will not get a negative reaction that might include violence?

Mind your own business.

mildot, i have read your posts, and will not be heeding your advice to mind my business. Glad I could lighten up your day though.

In all seriousness ,that is very dangerous. If you fail to see it, thats a personal problem.

You do whatever you like. Don't be surprised at the result you get.

Personally, I don't take too well to strangers who show up at my door (car or home) and think that what I do is any of their business. It tends to bring out the worst in me, if you know what I mean.

While there is absolutely NO WAY I would transport Rascal like this, I can think of much worse transports I have seen. At least they have a wind break on top of the cab. I'd have made the sides another 18 inches or so higher, tied him a tad bit shorter, and I'd be driving Miss Daisy as far as speed goes. I hope he is on a nice rubber pad for traction.

This puts me in mind of the photo of the guy on a moped with the donkey LOL

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

Let's keep it on track folks. That is the way it was done for years and years before the horse trailer was built and made affordable for the average horse/livestock owner.

Certainly better then this

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

At least the guy put sides on it and a block from the wind. When I bought my horse 15 years ago I bought her from this really very back road kind of guy. One of his "selling points" when I went to look at her was "shes so calm! I drove her down the road in the back of my pickup truck the other day!" There are people out there that do this, and while I don't consider it safe, unfortunately you can't stop stupid.
